Stencil Sunday #45

Good evening all.

It's my turn to share an inspirational Stencil Sunday project over at STAMPlorations today.

A very simple upcycle project today using a plain box. I started by covering the whole box with gesso then used embossing paste and the Bloom Silhouettes stencil around the sides to create some decoration. The box was then painted with distress paint. This is still a UFO....once I decide what I'm going to use it for I'll add some more decor to it but I wanted to show the difference made by the simple addition of some dimension.

And the May Mixed Media Challenge runs until the end of the month! If you want to play, you still have plenty of time left to get messy and share your non-card mixed media projects. It's anything mixed media goes except a card...and you must use a stencil (any brand or even a homemade one!) in your project(s). For the complete challenge info + prizes, click here.
